Three-dimensional (3D) printing of engineering materials has generated significant interest in industry and academia. It promises design freedom, streamlining of process plan, remote digital manufacturing, fast market response, and cost saving. Although most engineering materials can be additively manufactured, the inherent volumetric and surface defects of 3D-printed samples hinder a full-scale industrial application. This presentation first summarizes current 3D printing techniques and suitable post-processing technologies to enhance dimensional, form, surface, and reliability of 3D printed engineering materials. The second part of this meeting proposes an international collaboration program among universities in Belgium, Brazil, and USA to explore and characterize hybrid manufactured materials for demanding engineering applications.
